Before and After and Bye Bye!

I have been looking for some frames for my favorite Cavallini bird prints from my calendar last year. They make the most beautiful calendars, in my opinion. I wanted to hang something over my chest of drawers but couldn't bring myself to order ready-made Target frames and the prints didn't warrant custom framing. So...I went to one of my favorite consignment spots in town, Page's Furniture. My friend Anna blogged about it here. Of course, I found the perfect pair, for just $5!! Yes, they obviously needed some work.

So I enlisted my little design assistant and used half a tube of Rub n' Buff and replaced the mat with a ready-made mat from Michaels. I think they turned out pretty well, for $2.50 each.

Now I'm off to a fun weekend with some of my childhood best friends and THEN a week in paradise. Well, actually, a week in South Carolina. But that's paradise to me. Back in a week!
